“There’s a darkness in every sense”…

gee

~

Welcome to the dark side…
On the edge of the abyss…

A place submerged in shadows…
Where the fallen angels kiss…

And whisper to each other…
Forbidden fantasies and lies…

All the secrets of this world…
Carried on the wings of flies…

Delivered like a message…
On an arrow tipped with fire…

Lighting up the blackness…
Where the ungodly do conspire…

The ones who roam silently…
Trapped within a falling tear…

Who no longer feel emotion…
No hate, no love, no fear…

The lost and the damned…
In a state of perpetual strife

Who never saw this coming…
Slept walked through their life…

But now pay for their sins…
And the path they chose…

As their moments of distraction…
Became the thorns of a rose…

Now embedded in their soul…
And tearing at their skin…

An everlasting reminder…
Of the eternal Hell they’re in…

A place where human kindness…
Never began to even exist…

And demons in your dreams…
Infect, distort and twist…

Whilst in the vivid nightmares…
Your mind is filled with doubt…

As suddenly it hits you…
There is really no way out…

And as memories begin to fade…
Numbness will replace any fear…

Now was it worth the price…
Your soul has paid to get here…

  1. Another brilliant piece, J…we love this..speaks to each of us in a different way..how do you do that thing you do? Sometimes it is worth the price…Sometimes there was no choice given……..~~ccchanel….

  2. Wow. Really like this one.
    I have been suffering from a very deep depression the last two weeks, and this kind of describes my state of being. (Am climbing out of the hole slowly.)

  3. Excellently penned Jamie, great structure and rhyme … holding the tension of the opposites has been my theme of the week I feel. Love how ‘pregnant’ your darkness feels … the abyss, always unavoidable … necessary even.
